Each year we contribute at least 1 percent of company pre-tax profits to the Adobe Foundation, a private foundation created and funded by Adobe. In 2012 we provided more than $8 million in grant funds to education and arts organizations worldwide.
Beginning in 2013 we’re providing increased funding in communities where we have the largest employee populations. We’re also incentivizing our employees to make their own monetary donations and volunteer their time.
The Adobe Foundation supports creativity as a force for social innovation and for improving communities. We believe imagination and design are tools to raise awareness and inspire creative solutions. The Foundation's Creativity Grants are focused on empowering people to communicate new ideas, tell their stories, and envision solutions for improving society. These grants support eligible nonprofit organizations and educational institutions worldwide with programs, projects, or activities that focus on inspiring creative solutions to issues through the use of technology and design tools, visual or multimedia, education, and innovative collaborations.
